Changes to ILA Funding

The Scottish Government have notified us of major changes to Individual Learning Accounts. It is anticipated that the current ILA scheme will end on 30 September 2017.

There are some key dates that we'd like to make you aware of:

If a student wants to open an account or renew an expired account:

29 April 2017: Last day to request a renewal form through the SDS helpline on 0800 917 8000

30 April 2017: Last day to request an application form on My World of Work

Mid May 2017: Application and renewal forms must be returned by mid May so that they can be processed by 31 May

31 May 2017: Last day that an account will be opened or renewed

If a student wants to book a course under the existing ILA scheme:

30 June 2017: Last day bookings can be made under the existing ILA scheme. Bookings can only be made for courses with a start date no later than 30 September 2017.

A replacement scheme of Individual Training Accounts will be launched in October 2017. Further information on the changes is available on the My World of Work ILA FAQ page.
